    I was asked to walk through the resume, describe past projects and school stuff. Then I was asked brain teaser questions like what is the cost of business for oil company. The interview questions are mainly focused on knowing if you follow the market and if you have a clear thought process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at National Securities.

    Interview

    There was no interview process. The whole interview was pointless. As long as you made an appointment with them for the interview they hire you on the spot. They lose out on nothing since it is an unpaid internship.
